Chilled Raw Tomato Soup Recipe- Vegan, Grain Free, Sugar Free, Easy

 photo IMG_0348_zps0c3a1bc5.jpgI'm a fan of chilled soups in the summer- they're a very refreshing appetizer that both quenches thirst and tastes delicious, while usually being very easy and cheap to make. This chilled raw tomato soup is similar to gazpacho, only it is entirely tomato based. It's a big hit with everyone who's tasted it, and it takes less than 5 minutes to make. And it's gluten free, dairy free, egg free, vegan, sugar free, grain free, Paleo/Primal, etc... Very worthwhile.
It's also the perfect thing to do with past prime tomatoes that are a little too wilty to put in a vegetable salad.

P.S. In the past, when I've shared recipes like this, people were sure there was a typo when they saw how many tomatoes. Nope, not a typo- there's 15 there. This is tomato based, after all...

Chilled Raw Tomato Soup Recipe- Vegan, Grain Free, Sugar Free, Easy

3 tablespoons balsamic vinegar

1. Chuck the tomatoes, quartered, into a food processor or blender, and blend.

2. Add the garlic cloves and process until smooth.

3. Add the rest of the ingredients and blend.

Are you a tomato fan? A chilled soup fan? Have you ever made something similar? Does this seem like a recipe you'd try?


  1. It's so hot here a good cold soup is very welcome. Looks easy and delicious.

  2. Came just in time.. the temperature is barely tolerable!

  3. This is awesome! Just got back from a 5-day camping trip to discover the mother-load of tomatoes in my garden. I'm always worried about rotting before we can eat them all. I'm totally making this today!

  4. Commenting again because I've made this TWICE in less than 24 hours. It's that good. My husband was practically crying when he ate it!
